3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours from the bottle nearly black with thick, luscious well-sustained dark khaki foam. It smells of mocha, caramel, raisins and alcohol. Itís full-flavored, a bit slick and velvety. Smooth and roast with chocolate and coffee, caramel and raisin sweetness gradually emerge and blend. Itís a bit syrupy and sweet when well chilled, but as it warms the roastyness lends itself very well to the fruit... Reeeeally good.

bottle. dark black pour with thin lasting tan head. another beautiful looking Yeti. alcohol heavy in aroma but also some sweetness. hard to put my finger on it. creamy and rich. I really like this one. The oats cut it a bit and the raisons add another layer. pretty damn good but thatís what you come to expect from the Yeti line.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aromas of dark roasted malts, chocolate and hints of dark fruit. A brownish black pour with a non-lastig khakie head and moderate lacing. The taste is overall bitter. Roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, hints of dark fruit, concludes with a aggressive hop bitter finish. Medium-full body with high carbonation. Overall, well done. The oats do soften the overall bitterness.

From a bomber. Inky black body and a creamy tan head. Good lacing. Smells of cocoa and coffee. Smoother, lighter than the other Yeti's. Full-flavor nonetheless. Tastes of coffee and roasted barley and a touch of raisin.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A rather tepid black pour. Plush dark chocolate, star anise and creme de violette nose; there are more understated complexities here than stylistic checkpoints. Doughy malts and distant dark fruit, plum most heavily. Hops are framed in holly and cinnamon bark.
Clean, composed flavor of chocolate malt and blood orange, with the heavy coffee like bitterness flashing briefly at the start. Rich malts wash in and overwhelm it. There is a thin sweetness of cola in the middle, but the finish draws out long and slowly warming.
Deep but not viscous palate with light bubbles; itís an excellent balance of depth and drinkability here. This is likely the smoothest and most laid back version.
